From Muker. Diverted off Pennine Way along farm track, then animal tracks over to summit. Small amount of heather bashing and one wire-topped wall to cross before rejoining PW near Keld.the pigguy 11/05/2024
Lovely views when you reach the top, but there was a bit of a tricky path to get there. Lots of wet feet afterwards!Spooderman24/10/2023
From CP in Keld village (honesty box). Walked out of village, then L on PF. After steep hill, path goes through gate. Turn L and walk to R of wall as it climbs and turns R until you reach a wooden gate in the wall. Then walk on other side of wall until you see a currick ahead. This route has no walls to climb. I think the gate is the one mentioned by NormanW although not the same grid ref (I didn't note the correct reference).peter4lc11/08/2023
7.1 mile circular from Keld. Along the Pennine Way then we left this to follow the footpaths north, west, then south of the hill. We left the path near the tips (dis) marked on the OS map and followed the wall on the left side over another easy-to-climb wall up to the summit. A little bit of heather bashing from this direction but not too bad. We returned to the path south sheltering behind a wall for 10 mins due to storm. We then followed the path to just outside Muker before taking the pretty path through Swaledale back towards Keld. The waterfall south of East Stonesdale farm is a worthy detour too. 427m ascent. A few people about despite the stormy weather forecast. Lovely views throughout. First hill of the day. Afterwards we drove to and bagged Tailbridge Hill, Mount Ida and Barnarm Scar.DanTrig08/07/2023

evening visit from keld, lovely heatherrichardrosser12/08/2021
Up from Keld having pitched the tend at the riverside campsite and found the hotel closed for food - noodle it is then for supper. Followed the advice of previous baggers and NowmanW to go to 89385 00256 before cutting up the hill - that way there is one gate to open before you get to the summit. A Yorkshire version of jenga awaits visitors at the top with the summit just a bit further away.Father Ted12/08/2021
From Muker on good track that ascended steeply until crossed PW. Then easier going before following track by wall to gap and across to HP and stones before going on to large cairn.PeterD27/06/2021

Short circular from Keldrhalstead16/09/2020
From Keld climbing south over open moor direct to the top upon leaving the Pennine Way. No crossing point at the corner in the wall near the summit. Found a crossing place just north east of the corner but requires climbing and the stones are loose. Great care taken as I hate climbing dry stone walls on principle. Spent a minute trying to adjust a few stones to make them more stable, so the wall was in better condition after my visit than it was before.ijpowell31/08/2020
